“[Instant delivery] is currently a hot topic in the world of E-commerce, and when you look at the likes of Amazon, you'll see that this retailer has paved the way for same-day delivery. This feature is still in its infancy so there are location limitations, but it won't be long before this is an option for everyone ... This kind of “instant delivery” is in high demand and something that retailers should prepare for in future.”

The article also gives insight into how retailers can keep up with the evolving landscape.

With so much growth in E-commerce, staying ahead of the competition can be a difficult one to master. Remember to stay connected to the latest technology, provide a personalized shopping experience for your audience, and continue to move with the trends.”
